What appears to be harmless little whirlwinds and dust devils turns out to be a precursor to something a lot more deadlier and ends up threatening New York City's very existence.

Storyline

An unexplained, local split in the atmosphere causes a series of total unpredictable, yet devastating tornadoes. Rookie fireman Brian Flynn gets trapped in the underground sewage with his girlfriend, deputy mayor James 'Jim' Lawrence and climatologist Dr. Cassie Lawrence's niece Lori. Mayor Leonardo of New York initially refuses to pay proper attention to the phenomenon, a 'reelection threat', so the alert status remains too low for long. Atypical lightning discovered inside tornadoes adds unprecedented dangers. The Lawrences and aeronautics renegade Dr. Lars Liggenhorn conceive a possible solution by launching rockets, but NASA's Dr. Quinn overrules them, imposing standard silver iodine. Written by KGF Vissers

Special Effects OK wish I could say the same about the acting!
29 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Typical type of disaster movie, with some nicish effects, if a little bit green!

At one point I thought they were going to call Ghostbusters as the green ecto plasam descended on NY.

This file is let down with some poor acting specially Nicole de Boer (Dr. Cassie Lawrence) who acts like she's the most important person in the world!

Worth a watch if you have not much to do (as i did, watched it on CH5 UK) and its on TV would not go out and rent it, guess thats what you get for made for TV movies, not sure if it made the Cinema but doubt it.
